Big media meets bloggers March 16, 2004 1:23 PM   Subscribe

"Post editors didn’t think much of Lott’s remarks as news, and they tried to confine Edsall to a paragraph or two. He had to write his 660-word story and show it to them before they could see any real news in it. This is where prominent webloggers like Josh Marshall, Atrios, Glenn Reynolds, but also others entered in." Interesting piece taking off from "Big Media" Meets the "Bloggers." (PDF)

I thought it was a great essay, but after reading it, what more really needs to be said?

I know, thanks for showing it to us. (I'm still reading it)

Good article could have been a FPP even. I've had people ask me "What's a blog?" and there be a certain amount of skepticism about the blogging world this article in the first few pages answers a lot.

I guess I felt it was too inside-baseball, and with a lot of rehashing of stuff people here already know, for an FPP. But it did cite MeFi, even if we didn't rate an actual name-drop. Still, personally, I'm fascinated by the evolving interface between blogs and journalism, and I figured a few other people would be also.
